    My MA is Shaolin-do Kung Fu, our grandmaster is in Kentucky. What is the ‘style’ generally for ‘fightergirls’?

    I was referred to this website from one of the guys on ‘our’ board. I’m going to have to get a ‘fighter girl’ tee. 😈

    Please excuse us regulars as we switch over from the old forum and may not be checking this one yet.

    You’ll probably get most people saying “mixed martial ats” or mostly a mixture of wrestling, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and boxing. Maybe as the other old forum regulars switch over they would be better to ask…I’m a photogrpaher but don’t fight.

    Started in Kickboxing…then moved to grappling by starting off with people who were wrestling-oriented. Developed a good single-leg takedown. My takedown defense is not as good, however. Then, while the others were worrying about being taken down, I worked heavily on my open guard. I feel competant with leg-fighting (leg submissions). For some reason, I sparred a lot with some people who were really fond of leg submissions. Luckily, or unluckily, It`s been a really long time since I have been submitted by them. I don`t like relying on what I am good at. I want to improve my takedown defense and my explosiveness on the ground, as well as my sweeps/reversals. I think that most people that I have grappled with spend too little time working on sweeps and reversals and focus too heavily on submissions.

    I used to Live in Kentucky. I also lived in Dallas for a short while. Tra Telligman knows his shit with leg submissions. Don`t tell me that your Grand master is Grand Master Cooke? That is the most clique-ish group of Martial artists that I have ever come accross. That is not to talk down Cooke’s skill, just the attitude of many of his students. I knew a lot of people that attended his classes. He is the most popular “grand master” that I have heard of in Kentucky.

    I don’t fight…just a fan:D I’m currently training in BJJ, Muay Thai, Filipino MA, Sayoc Kali and JKD. I earned a black belt in Shaolin Kempo a few years ago. I just love Martial Arts!

    Hey!
    I used to do Shaolin-do as well — for about 2 years. (BTW – I don’t think she is referring to GM Cooke). I truly loved it, but left after what I will call a series of serious ‘misunderstandings’. It’s a great system though. Before that I did a non-traditional form of karate for about 7 years, and now I am doing a lot of internal chinese martial arts work after suffering several injuries, including an ACL rupture. I’m also boxing. I love all of the martial arts I have done, but wish I had gained more grappling experience. Most likely, you won’t get that in your Shaolin training unless they have a special class for it. I guess it’s never too late to learn, but at age 27, sometimes it seems a little daunting!

    Are you under Sin The or his brother?

    I started out training in Shaolin Kempo. Did some tournaments on the east coast as I went through the ranks – got my black about 3 or 4 years ago. Got introduced to BJJ about 2 years ago. I moved to San Diego 1 1/2 years ago specifically to train BJJ with the instructor I have now. Just started competing in BJJ last February. I LOVE it! I do miss the stand up game and want to get back into it again. I’d love to get into mma fighting after some training.

    You went from the East cost to San Diego? Why did you pick San Diego?
    How do you like it?

    The reason I ask is that I’m thinking of moving there, or some other places in Cali, like Mission Viejo…

    Yup… huge change! I moved from Vermont to San Diego!! 🙂 I picked San Diego because that’s where my instructor is. I decided I wanted to train with him after I took a couple of his seminars when he came to the east coast.

    I LOVE living here!! I’ve met so many great people and you can’t beat the weather!! 🙂

    Do you have any places in mind to train if you move out here?

    I have no idea, in San Diego. I’m not even sure what gyms are in San Diego. I knew the Lion’s Den had a gym there. I don’t think I’d want to train at another Lions Den. It was ok once, but I’d rather diversify.

    I would train with Chris Brennan if I moved to Mission Viejo. I want to live in south Cali, but not LA. Mission Viejo is just south of there, and close to Huntington beach.

    Where are the 10th Planet BJJ clubs? (Eddie Bravo). Are they in San Diego? I’m all about the no-gi!

    Training with Chris Brennan would be a good move.

    Eddie’s school is in Hollywood.

    Depending on how far south you plan on living, you should also check out City Boxing – they’re in downtown San Diego. Dean Lister & Brandon Vera are instructors there….
